Well, yes, but it's just dumping the MSVC implementation of timezones,
which is less useful than if I could get it to link against the tzcode

I did have to switch from environ-manipulation to putenv (need to make
it do that conditionally then I'll make a patch) and call tzset. How
exactly was it working before without ever calling tzset? Am I missing
something? Or is it just that most unix implementations, and the tzcode
implementation, happen to be tolerant of calling localtime without
calling tzset?
